More Three-Headed Monster Awards
Illini Wonk can see that it's going to be difficult to keep up with all of the awards that this team is going to receive. All that can be promised is that we'll do our best.
Today, it's the U.S. Basketball Writers Association
who named Dee Brown First-Team All-American
and Luther Head to the Second-Team. The two of them, along with the third member of their backcourt, Deron Williams, are also finalists for the USBWA's Oscar Robertson Trophy
One sports-writer who posted his vote
is Gregg Doyel. He put Brown on his first team and Williams on the second team. For coach of the year, Doyel has Boston College's Al Skinner edging out Bruce Weber due to Illinois' regular-season-ending loss at OSU. Doyel may want to rethink that in light of BC's performance today
